Josh Sperling - Sorry We're Closed


Josh Sperling

Josh Sperling draws on the language of minimalist painting from the 1960s and 1970s, primarily working with shaped canvases. He crafts intricate plywood supports over which canvas is stretched and painted in a signature palette of saturated, sometimes clashing colors. In their three-dimensionality, his works blur the lines between painting and sculpture, image and object. Mining a wide range of sources, from design to art history, Sperling has crafted a unique visual vocabulary remarkable for its expressive quality and irrepressible energy.

Josh Sperling work has been the subject of numerous solo presentations including Perrotin, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo and Seoul (2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 ); Bill Brady, Miami in 2020, Sorry We're Closed, Brussels in 2018. 

He is part of several public collection including; Arsenal Contemporary, Montreal, Canada, Powerlong Museum, Shanghai, China, Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai, China, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, France, Longlati Foundation, Hong Kong and SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah, GA, USA
